VIP PRIVATE SCREENING OF CELIE'S REVENGE
MOREHOUSE BENEFIT FOR TROY ENNIS & AKEEM PEARCE
the revolution of the mind continues...
You are invited to a special private screening of the MadMan's first promotional short film, CELIE's REVENGE.
The film is a tongue-in-cheeck adaptation of the infamous "table scene" in the movie "The Color Purple"... except we re-imagined what it would have been if Celie had been leaving because she wanted to leave the "coonin'" behind & join the "revolution of the mind" with the MadMen of WYMS Radio.
Hilarious, crazy and thought provoking, the short is sure to have you laughing while thinking about the social ills that plaque our community.
...and in the vein of community....
The MadMen of WYMS are pledging a large portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales to help two promising young men, Troy & Akeem, attend Morehouse college. These two charismatic youth, took a stand for their education, the education of their peers and their school by organzing a movement to save their former high school, Brooklyn's Paul Robeson from closure.
The movement put the boys on the move, and gave them a taste of why organization, having a vision and telling 'em why you are mad works. They have since become interested in furthering their education and doing more for the community.
Morehouse has already pledged 50 thousand dollars in financial aid, but the rest is up to us, the community, to help these kids get a shot at higher education.
Your purchase of a ticket to CELIE'S REVENGE will help them reach that goal. Even if you cannot attend the event, we ask that you PLEASE buy a "DONATION" ticket and show these kids that it DOES take a village and that THIS village of MadMen is about ACTION.
